Mike Huckabee Leads In Iowa, And That Shows What's Wrong With The Iowa Caucuses

Polling Presidential races more than two years before Election Day is, as I've noted several times in the past, usually not nearly as important as the media organizations that publicize the polls make them out to be. Nobody has actually entered the Presidential race on either side of the ticket, many of the potential candidates are people that, notwithstanding their constant appearances on cable news networks, are largely unknown to voters on the ground, and there's been virtually no real campaigning of any kind.

Kennedy and eight years later was elected to the White House. Ronald Reagan tried twice, in 1968 and 1976, and didn't win the Republican nomination until 1980, when he was elected president.
